Consolidated texts

In this section, you can find consolidated versions of European Union acts that give the view of the act as applicable at a specific point in time. This section covers legal acts published in the Official Journal of the European Union that were amended or corrected in the course of their life cycle.

How to search in this section?

If you want to access consolidated texts, you can use the Search in Consolidated texts function on the left-hand side of this page. This redirects to an advanced search form that offers many options. Searches will be performed only within the remit of the “Consolidated texts” section (acts that have not been amended or corrected and, as a consequence, never consolidated, will not be found).

The current consolidated texts are also directly accessible from search results and from the page of the initial act.

If you click on “Show all versions” on the left-hand side of a consolidated text, you will see a list of all consolidated versions of the specific act.

See leaflet on consolidation.
